EastEnders fans rejoice as Phil Mitchell decks Jonno Highway for f*ggot slur against Callum

(Picture: BBC)

Its not often that Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) is hailed as a gay icon but tonight, he had everyone cheering for him as he put Jonno Highway (Richard Graham) where he belongs – on the floor with a bleeding nose.

EastEnders viewers were horrifed by Jonnos vulgar reaction when a brave Callum (Tony Clay) stood up to him and came out as gay. As Jonno lashed out with hateful comments and violence to Ben, he used disgusting language and branded his son a f*ggot.

Phil did what everyone was wanting to do and punched Jonno to the floor. And fans were absolutely living for it.

The episode was quite the journey for Callum. After Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) gave him a pep talk about standing up for himself, he marched into the Vic and asked Ben for a date. But Jonno ruined the moment with his deplorable confrontation.

The whole pub were rooting for Callum as he came out and put his dad in his place. And after Jonno was put in his place by Phil. Callum seized the moment and grabbed Ben (Max Bowden) for a kiss – and all of us Ballum fans were loving it.

BREAKING: This is not a drill.#Ballum fans, THEY ARE OFFICIAL.

Tonight's ending saw Callum come out to the entire Queen Vic, and make the beginning of Ballum's relationship OFFICIAL!
